No matter the type of project, staying within budget is always a top concern. Luckily, WillScot FLEX mobile offices offer unique benefits that can reduce overall costs while minimizing your company’s carbon footprint in the process. Below are three ways that FLEX offices can help limit waste and environmental impact to improve the efficiency of your next project.
1. ENERGY EFFICIENCY
By reducing the amount of energy needed to heat, cool and light the workspace, your FLEX office will consume less energy and reduce carbon emissions. Motion-activated LED lighting and double-pane windows also help make FLEX mobile offices more energy efficient and cost effective. Their Energy Star™ HVAC units are certified by both the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure efficient air flow that saves money and helps protect the environment.
2. RECYCLABLE MATERIALS
The panelized structure of a FLEX mobile office means its walls can be reconfigured and reused, which cuts down on overall building waste. Our advanced refurbishment processes restore 20,000+ units every year, ultimately extending unit life up to 30 years. That means FLEX mobile offices can be reused job after job to meet the specific needs of different sites without the extraction of new raw materials each time. Once panels are no longer usable, materials are recycled so they can be used again in other applications. What’s more, FLEX mobile offices can be fully equipped with reusable Essentials: desks, chairs, whiteboards, microwaves and more are placed into the unit by request and support a reduction in waste and transportation. When the FLEX office gets reused on the next job, so does everything inside it.
3. MODULAR DESIGN
When a project goes through multiple phases, WillScot FLEX mobile offices can be rearranged to meet the exact needs of your project. FLEX offices are modular in design, meaning they can be easily mixed, matched and reassembled to serve job sites as they change over time. This allows the structures to be reused and repurposed on the same project, reducing the need for new construction that creates delays and stretches your budget. This adaptable design helps reduce material usage, emissions and costs, while also helping you achieve your ESG goals.
